      Description Anti-Oct-4 Antibody, clone 10H11.2
      Overview Purified monoclonal antibody for the detection of Human Oct-4.
      Alternate Names
      • Octamer-binding transcription factor 3
      • POU class 5 homeobox 1
      • POU domain class 5, transcription factor 1
      • POU domain, class 5, transcription factor 1
      • POU-type homeodomain-containing DNA-binding protein
      • octamer-binding transcription factor-3
      Background Information Octamer-4 (Oct-4), a member of the POU family of transcription factors, has been demonstrated to be vital for the formation of self-renewing pluripotent stem cells. During embryogenesis expression of Oct-4 is limited to pluripotent cells of the inner cell mass (ICM) that contribute to the formation of all fetal cell types. This relationship between Oct-4 and pluripotency has seen this transcription factor emerge as a marker of pluripotent stem cells. Undifferentiated human and murine pluripotent Embryonic Stem (ES) and Embryonic Carcinoma (EC) cells express Oct-4. Additionally, murine Embryonic Germ (EG) cells are also known to express Oct-4. Following stem cell differentiation, the level of Oct-4 expression decreases. Oct-4 expression by human EG cells is not known.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt Summary FUNCTION: SwissProt: Q01860 # Transcription factor that binds to the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Prime candidate for an early developmental control gene.
      SIZE: 360 amino acids; 38571 Da
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Ubiquitous. Expressed at low levels.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: Q01860 ## Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 5 subfamily. & Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain. & Contains 1 POU-specific domain.
      MISCELLANEOUS: Several pseudogenes of POU5F1 have been described on chromosomes 1, 3, 8, 10 and 12. 2 of them, localized in chromosomes 8 and 10, are transcribed in cancer tissues but not in normal ones and may be involved in the regulation of POU5F1 gene activity in carcinogenesis.
